Hello all,
My wifes Grandfather worked for the N&W at either Wheelersberg or
Portsmouth Ohio. In some of items that was given to me was what looked
like a hat band. The metal band is about 5 inches long and 1 inch wide.
With Yard Conductor stamped on it.
I was wondering what a Yard Conductor job was? Unforutanly he is no
longer with us and I was asked not to ask questions unless he started
talking about work.
Any insights would be helpful and welcome. Thank you for any respones.
